Hollie Johnson,
FNP

Hollie Johnson joined the Steamboat Orthopaedic & Spine Institute’s Lander, Wyo., clinic in December, 2021. As the clinic’s family nurse practitioner, Hollie works with Dr. Sauerbrey, Dr. Sisk, and Dr. Allred.

An expert communicator with experience in critical care and sexual assault nursing, Hollie consults with patients on their orthopaedic needs to help determine when a surgical consult is necessary. In addition, she leads patients through pre-op preparation and post-op recovery, ensuring that those who travel to one of SOSI’s surgical centers are taken care of locally.

“It’s essential that our patients are comfortable, and my biggest role is to communicate with them at a level they understand,” she said. “Patients will have my phone number and be able to call me. I’ll be close by and can do their after care in Lander.”

Hollie is also fully trained and certified to assist in surgeries, giving her the insight and expertise to offer patients from rural Wyoming the premium care for which SOSI is renowned.

In addition to her medical experience, Hollie excels at communicating with people from all walks of life. A Wyoming native who was raised in part on a dairy farm, she worked as a bartender out of college for a decade before completing nursing school. After working as a nurse, Hollie transitioned to inpatient psychiatric care. Her myriad of experiences endow Hollie with a warm empathy and keen insight into human behavior.

She began her medical career studying to be a transcriptionist, but wound up becoming a CNA, then a nurse. Hollie then pursued her nurse practitioner certification after her son became ill with renal disease.

“Overseeing his care as he endured multiple hospitalizations and surgeries exposed me to the best and worst of the medical industry and made me want to do more to treat others how I would want to be treated.”

In addition to demystifying the surgical process and helping patients prepare and recover from surgery, Hollie enjoys working on preventative measures to catch problems early before they escalate. Early interventions can make a big difference, and she is dedicated to helping patients address issues so as to help them maintain stamina and strength.

Hollie has lived in Lander for five years and loves to spend her free time with family, vacationing, visiting some of Wyoming’s beautiful lakes, or heading to the  mountains to fish and camp.. She has raised three biological and three foster children, and is now an empty nester. She is married to a Lander native with three kids of his own.

Her advice for maintaining health is to get outside every day.

“No matter if you dislike the cold or heat, every single day go outside and take a minute to get fresh air,” she said.

Hollie completed her undergraduate studies at Casper College and her graduate school at Walden University out of Minneapolis, Minn. She is a member of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP).
